This is a link from a site that I have subscribed to called Math Coach Corner.  Each time I read something from this site, I have one of those moments (I’m not going to use the annoying term).  I love the concise nature of this post for explaining, in simplest terms, the process and purpose of assessment.  It really looks at task analysis and defining specific gaps.  Have a read.
